Photo Depicting iPhone 5S Camera Module Hints at Separate Dual-LED Flash Component




A clear photo comparing the iPhone 5 camera module to what may be the camera module for the iPhone 5S surfaced today, showing a distinct design change that may hint at a separate flash component in Apple's next iPhone.

Shared by Nowhereelse.fr [Google translation], the photo of the alleged iPhone 5S camera part does not include a flash component attached via ribbon as the iPhone 5 does, which may be because the iPhone 5S is expected to come equipped with a more powerful dual-LED flash.

The camera module in the photo appears to be the same as one that was published last week and tied to the iPhone 5C, but rumors have suggested that the iPhone 5C will share multiple parts with the iPhone 5, making it more likely that the new component design is intended for Apple's iPhone 5S.

Photos of iPhone 5S components have depicted a pill-shaped dual-LED flash to replace the current circular flash on the iPhone 5. A dual-LED flash would improve the performance of the iPhone's flash, creating better lit, less harsh flash photos in low light conditions.

While the camera module does not reveal information about the camera's specs, the iPhone 5S is expected to come with a 12-megapixel rear camera with a larger aperture for improved low light photography. It is also rumored to feature a new slow motion photography mode to complement its current panoramic capabilities.

Siri 'Eyes-Free'

Or, this photo hints that Apple is slowly fazing out the camera to supplement it's Siri 'Eyes-Free' feature. In it's place, users will describe a scene they are thinking of in 3-5 seconds, and Siri will render her interpretation of your image and post it on your wall for you. Truly Eyes-Free Siri, coming Sept 2014*.

*Only for iPhone 6, for no apparent reason.

Just nitpicking here but what you mean to say is a larger aperture or a lower f-stop.

I agree that a bigger sensor would be a MORE SIGNIFICANT addition to the iPhone's camera system, I'm just not holding my breath for it's debut in the next hardware update.

Looks like the flash is for use in daylight (orange) and evening (clear).

This means that the lense will let more light in, and more light means less time is required to capture an image, so images at night will be less blurry and brighter and less grainy (the grain comes from amplifying low light signals, also known as ISO in the photography world).

Also lower f-stops generally allow you to set up photos with a very sharp specific focus so you can have a subject in focus with a blurred background which looks cool.

All this is going to do is give a little more natural look to flash pics. They won't be as blown out.
